Such a great time at the Great Falls Brewfest today! We had five breweries enter our contest (brew an amazing beer using our malts!) and @bearbonesbeer won! ( By one vote! It was ridiculously close. ) Thank you to our raffle winner from last year who rocked her winnings! We truly appreciate you representing local! We also want to congratulate Shannon McNally who won #blueox swag, just for drinking beer (and picking 2 favorites.) See you all again next year!
Another beautiful weekend on tap! So many things to choose from tomorrow: @allagashbrewing's #streetfair , @baxterbrewing's #greatfallsbrewfest or perhaps take a scenic drive and visit a couple breweries like our pals at @norwaybrewingco!

Who stopped by the @craftmalting booth down at #craftbrewersconference2017 ? Joel and David were helping out with the steep method of sensory tasting. Did you get a chance to try? Who is interested in trying one out?

Had a great partial staff meeting at @flightdeckbrewingco today and what staff meeting at a brewery would be complete without trying a few beers? All of Flight Decks beers are brewed using 100% #BlueOxMalthouse for the base malts! #Cheers
the initial growth phase of the acrospires and rootlets right after the rupture of the grain’s seed coat during the malting process. The seed coat consists of the testa and pericarp layers. These layers protect the kernel’s enzyme-containing aleuron layer, which, in turn, envelops the endosperm
Two years ago today this sign was ready to adorn the front of our building in Lisbon Falls, Maine!
Thank you to the brewers, distillers, and growers that we have connected with in the past two years! And cheers to all of those we will connect with this year and all the years to come!

I'm a sucker for Whiskey Sours, especially with freshly squeezed Meyer Lemon juice! 🍋. Here's a recipe from @goldenbear_bitters using our Elderberry Syrup for a ruby red beauty of a drink. Cheers! 🍋🥂💕 Elderberry Whiskey Sour
2 oz Bourbon or Rye
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz Carmel Berry Co Elderberry Syrup
5 shakes Golden Bear Big Sur Citrus Bitters.
*optional 1 farm fresh egg white
If using egg white: Dry shake all ingredients except for Bitters in a cocktail shaker for 10 seconds. Then, open shaker and add ice. Shake again for 10 seconds and then strain using a fine mesh sieve into glass with one ice cube. Garnish with lemon peel and Bitters.
If making without egg white: Just shake all ingredients except Bitters in shaker with ice, strain into glass with ice cube, garnish with a lemon peel and Bitters.
Today I'll mostly experimenting with a range of #Shrubs for the forthcoming @chilternsfoodmagazine summer edition.
But what are shrubs?!? I hear you cry!
They are the ultimate colonial drink updated for modern times. A drinking vinegar, sweet & sour loveliness either drunk on their own or mixed with a spirit - I quite like Gin or maybe a Buckinghamshire sparkling? A twist on the Kir perhaps?
Anyway watch this space.....🍸🍹
